Which is the smallest multi-digit perfect square, that is also a palindrome, and all of whose digits are odd?

Can you find the product of any two two-digit numbers without multiplying, adding or subtracting?

Scared, baffled, panicked, is that how you feel at the very mention of the word maths? Does it make your palms sweat and give you worry-lines on your forehead? Well, here’s a book that will prove to you that playing with numbers can actually be fun.

Mindstretch invites you to put your skills of problem-solving, deduction, logic and lateral-thinking to the test without being attacked by lemmas, construction, induction and sundry other mathematical demons. Contained within these pages is an incredible collection of brainteasers, whodunits, mystery and logic games that will challenge your mental powers and provide you with hours of enthralling entertainment. And interspersed with curious facts about numbers, are magic squares, riddles on chess, a special crossword and a fascinating section showing you how to draw your own maze.

So stretch your mind and experience mathemagic!
